Nalle Hukkataival has made a rare repeat of Klem Loskot's BŁgeleisen, 8B+, at Maltatal, Austria.
After an epic battle, mostly against bad conditions and sickness, Nalle managed to climb the classic problem, which was put up by Klem more than a decade ago.
Unfortunately, as he lost 6 climbing days of the trip due to fever, he never had any time to get to work on the sit start project, which I've heard is amazing. Perhaps more news about that at a later date.
